Pat Robertson says Trump lives in 'alternate reality' and Biden will be president

During an airing of “The 700 Club” on Monday, Robertson, who is considered a Trump ally, responded to reports that the Supreme Court had denied another attempt by the Trump campaign to invalidate votes in other states.

“I had prayed and hoped that there might be some better solution, but I don’t think — I think it’s all over,” Robertson said. “I think the Electoral College has spoken. I think the Biden corruption has not totally been brought to fruition, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting the Electoral College, and I don’t think the Supreme Court is going to move in to do anything.”

Christian Broadcasting Network correspondent George Thomas later asked Robertson if he thought Trump should run again in 2024, as reports have suggested he has said to allies privately.

"I think it will be a mistake," said Robertson. "My money would be on Nikki HaleyNikki HaleyNikki Haley: If Biden rejoins Human Rights Council 'it will fly in the face of our fight for human rights' Trump selects South Carolina lawyer for impeachment trial Can we protect our country — from our rulers, and ourselves? MORE. I think she'd make a tremendous candidate for the Republican candidate. You know, with all his talent and the ability to raise money and grow large crowds, the president still lives in an alternate reality. He really does."

"People say, 'Well, he lies about this, that,' but, no, he isn't lying. To him, that's the truth," Robertson said, referring to Trump's claims of having the largest inauguration crowd, having the highest approval ratings and saving NBC with his show "The Apprentice," which Robertson said "really aren't true."

Though still praising Trump, Robertson said the president's behavior had been "erratic," making note of the officials he has fired in the weeks since Election Day.

"It would be well to say, 'You've had your day. It's time to move on,'" Robertson said, addressing Trump.

Robertson had previously said in October that God had told him Trump would win the election, after which an asteroid would hit the Earth.
